Rounding out a full day of fun at Galva's Ol' Fashioned Christmas is an evening full of excellent holiday music. Lewis Knudsen is a mixed-genre, multi-instrumentalist songwriter based in Rock Island, IL (Quad Cities). In the past few years Lewis has toured coast to coast in the US, as well as South Korea, Germany, Netherlands, Denmark, and the U.K. Lewis has opened for bands such as Amy Helm, Jesicca Hernandez, Nicholas David, and Davina and the Vagabonds. Influences include James Taylor, Randy Newman, Ben Folds, Hozier, Rufus Wainwright, Leonard Cohen, Tom Waits, and Jack White. Lewis’ most recent album “Philip” is enjoying airplay on Iowa Public Radio. In January of 2018, “All My Sins” was featured on FOX’s “UFC Road to the Octagon” and more TV/film placements are in the works. In 2018 Lewis has written and released a new song each week, while touring regionally in the midwest, and is currently working on plans for a new album in 2019. Lewis’ live repertoire includes over 500 songs, including covers from the ’50s – ’90s, as well as many original songs.
